Add History Billing Units  - How to customise the list of standard history entries to add to a case

Billing units are added automatically when you finish working on a case based on 6 minutes per unit.

The following confirmation screen is displayed for you to enter the details of the work carried out. You can either manually enter the description, if it's a standard item of work, you can select it from the drop down list. See the section below on setting up the standard items

You can optionally add billing units by using the "Add Units" menu button on the Case Details form


The "Manual Entry" option will open up the Add Billing Record form to allow you add the required number of units

The other options listed in the "Add Units" menu automatically add units without any further user input. You will receive confirmation in the bottom right of the Status Bar as shown below
